"The installation is a kind of x-ray view into the heart of the center, showing people from the outside the kind of joy and interactive play going on inside with music, dance and performance."
- Artist Scott Snibbe, an acclaimed San Francisco-based media artist
How can high-tech art help support downtown revitalization efforts?
In an area of Richmond, California known for high crime and a struggling economy—The Iron Triangle—the East Bay Center for the Performing Arts wanted to activate its entry plaza with an eye toward increasing visibility and foot traffic. Timed to coincide with a major renovation of its historic building, the building’s interactive media installation supports community activity on the sidewalk and in the plaza. The center has its sights set on creating a safer and more beautiful urban experience for the neighborhood.
